Reminder that your favorite Kantai probably massacred countless innocent Chinese and Koreans during the war.
I'm a little astounded at how unquestioningly people (even westerners) are lapping this up.
>You blame the gunman, not the gun
But this is wrong. Without a weapon a gunman can't kill anyone.
>he jumps to the enemy ship and beats them to death with his bare hands or a nearby pipe or wrench
Goddamn moron. People have been killing each other long before rocks, clubs, spears, swords, bows and guns existed. Tools simply improve the action.
By turning these ships into symbols of moe, we will hopefully make it so that's what people remember them for, rather than nationalistic pride. It's whitewashing them into something ridiculous.
You don't need a weapon to kill anon.
The IJA committed the major war crimes. The only ships in Kancolle who committed war crimes are:
I-08/Hachi - On two separate occasions she murdered prisoners taken after sinking merchant shipping
Tone - Despite protests by Tone's captain, she was ordered by the Captain of the Aoba to murder allied prisoners of war
Makigumo - Murdered two downed American aviators during the Battle of Midway
Akagi/Kaga - Sunk Australian hospital ships at Darwin.
That's about it.
I thought people had finally stopped posting that because the author of that article got blown the fuck out in the comments by people who actually knew the history of the ships and played kancolle unlike him.
- It's a retarded concept
- Terrible gotta-catch-em-all waifubait girls
- No substance (fuck you I don't want to hear it)
- My friends like it and I have to hear about it
- Not even fun to play
>Chinese and Koreans
And nothing of value was lost.
